These truly do the trick for a commuting rig. The plastic platform body is just large enough that you can use the bike with a pair of loafers en route to a business lunch. The eggbeater clip-ins are the most simply I've enountered and the clips recess nicely in a pair of commuting shoes. Downside: has not happened to me with these yet, but eggbeaters need maintenance. At the price-point, I tend to use them for ~3 years until they unspool and then replace them rather than follow the maintenance protocol.

They are initially great to use- very good in muddy conditions as there is lots of internal clearance for mud. I love the amount of float too. However, after 2 pairs of eggbeaters and 2 pairs of candies have snapped spindles, I've had enough. I can really do without the injuries they cause, and the associated time off the bike, not to mention the long walk/roll/1-leg-pedal back home when they break. I've heard first hand reports of others snapping plenty of spindles on these pedals as well. I gave up on the EBs while ago after a couple of snappage incidents, and swapped to Candies, but 2 spindle breakages in the past 7 months leads me to conclude that CB pedals have a serious design fault- weak/faulty/undersized spindles. They have all broken in the same place (see photo), so it is clearly a weakness in the design of these pedals. On Sunday the snapped left spindle gave my left thigh a very nasty greasy gouging (see photo) with plenty of blood and a big bruise on the back of my right thigh from the top tube or saddle when I went down. Last September I somehow managed to stay on the bike when a right spindle snapped whilst sprinting up a slope (different set of pedals), but had extensive bruising on the back of my left thigh and some strained arm muscles.
In every case the spindles have snapped when I was out of the saddle riding hard up a slope. I don't do big air- in fact I rarely get the wheels off the ground at all other than for the occasional log or rock, and weigh 78-80kg. I ride 150-200km/week on my Litespeed and Maverick, mainly on quiet remote dirt roads in fairly hilly terrain, and farm tracks with a bit of ST made by the cows. One pair snapped after less than 2500km, and the others at just under 8000km.
Would I recommend them? Only to someone who rode gently around on smooth roads, never pedalled out of the saddle and weighed under 50kg. I don't know anyone like that...

      These pedals are very hard to clip into! There is no adjust ability in the tension for exit or entry. I have now purchased Shimano XT pedals that work awesome.

        The Crank Brothers Candy 1 pedals are great, no matter what your skill level! The tension may not be adjustable, but the cleats that come with it can be setup at 15 or 20 degrees release angle, so beginners need not worry about getting stuck at the right (or should I say wrong) moment.

                    These pedals were incredibly affordable. They are also very easy to get used to, allowing for much quicker clip-ins than with traditional two-sided pedals.
